Sciencetech manufactures four high power versions of its ultra-high efficiency solar simulator. The smallest is the 500W version, which approaches the power output of most conventional 1000W systems on the market. Sciencetech also manufactures 1000W, 1600W and 2500W versions which are noticeably more intense than competing models of the same power rating.
Sciencetech solar simulators are ideal for high intensity applications and where energy level is important. A high pressure xenon arc lamp is used as the light source in this solar simulator model. The spectral distribution of this source, combined with specially calibrated Air Mass filters, can simulate the sun's true spectral distribution at various conditions on Earth and in Space (the Sun at various angles in the sky, or without atmospheric interference).
The SS series features a fully reflective design that does not require lenses or diffusers to make the output uniform at the target plane. This results in optimum throughput efficiency for the solar simulator, making Sciencetech solar simulators more efficient than competitive designs. The fully reflective design uses only mirrors to direct the light beam from the arc lamp source to the target plane, and produces high intensity, uniform illumination at the target plane.
The solar simulator can be mounted in a vertical or horizontal position, please specify which orientation when ordering. When in a horizontal position, the output beam exits from a side panel and illuminates an area on the wall (or whatever you put in front of it). An optional 90° folding mirror can be mounted at the output window to allow the beam to be redirected upward, downward, left or right. For vertical operation a floor mounted stand is required. The output beam exits horizontally, and the optional folding mirror can be used to direct the beam upward, downward, left or right.
